Student Assessment and Testing
We believe that neither excellence nor equity in education can be achieved as long as student assessment instruments, policies and practices limit opportunities to learn and narrow or dilute curricula and instruction. Both excellence and equity goals can, on the other hand, be served by assessments that help teachers to identify students' strengths as well as their needs and to determine the most appropriate and effective means of helping them to learn and grow.

Standardized Testing and At Risk Students
Standardized tests have a disproportionate impact on students, teachers and curriculum in schools that serve low income and minority students (Mitchell 1992; Tate 1993). Some widely found effects that are of particular consequence for equity in education are reviewed briefly below.
Testing and Ability Grouping
A substantial share of U.S. schools engage in ability grouping or tracking of students beginning at the elementary and middle grade levels according to presumed ability levels. As a number of studies have shown, tracking almost always means that those pupils who need the most support to raise their performance levels get the least, while those who need it the least have it showered on them. The consequence is a two tiered system of education characterized by the following conditions.

    Teachers Tackle Testing: The Scoop on Teacher Assessment
    A Harvard graduate, a Boston University graduate, and an MIT Ph.D. failed the Massachusetts new-teacher assessment test. How do you think you would do on it?
  • A registration process so cumbersome that it takes 45 minutes to complete
  • Fees ranging from $70 to $200
  • Two four-hour exams, with only a 15-minute break
  • Desks too small for the average adult's body
  • And your job depends on your performance! Does that describe an inhumane situation too archaic to be true or just the latest installment in the saga of teacher assessment? "I know students who lost jobs because of the test," said Salem State University professor Clark Fowler ("Teacher Exam Authors Put to the Test," Boston Globe , October 7, 1998).

    : Alternative assessment as cultural change

    In cultures where high stakes standardized testing is paramount, the introduction of alternative means of assessment can have unexpected results. This presentation explores cultural consequences of changing assessment modes as perceived by students, teachers, administrators and other members of society such as parents and employers.

    What tests do I need?
    What services does the Assessment and Testing Center provide?
    SCC's Assessment and Testing Center offers testing services to our students and community. We administer:
    • State-mandated entry and exit exams
      Florida law requires that you take specific tests

      Program-specific testing or placement requirements
      In some programs, there are different levels from which you can start. You may be entering the program with no previous knowledge or skill, and need to start at the beginner level. Or you may have extensive experience that allows you to begin at an advanced level. These tests let SCC evaluate your skills so you are placed in the program-level that best meets your educational needs.

    Testing 1, 2, 3 . . .
    Smart ways to weave standardized test preparation into your curriculum Contents S tandardized tests seem to have few friends these days (as long as you don't count the policy makers). Educational experts, teachers, and parents are voicing their opposition to them. Yet, the pressure is still on teachers to make sure that their students perform well. How come?
    Standardized tests have been a part of school life for decades. In the old days, test scores were tucked into student files, as just one measure of the child's skills and abilitiesand one that counted far less than assessments given by teachers. Today, they're being used to judge student, teacher, and school performance. And, states are handing out rewards (like cash bonuses to teachers) or punishments (the most severe of which is being fired) based on results.
    Given these high stakes, you need to prepare your students, no matter how you feel about the tests. But we hear you when you say, "I

    Assessment and Evaluation
    NATIONAL TESTING National testing has emerged as the closest thing to a cure-all for those who are concerned about the performance of Canada's public school system. It is widely assumed that national tests, based on an agreed set of national education goals or standards, can serve as a one-stop reference point for student achievement, and for the ability of our schools to meet the needs of a complex modern society. The reality, for better or worse, is that there are no magic bullets or easy answers to complex questions. Testing is already a part of the regular routine in public schools across the country. But it's important to understand what tests can actually do, and to recognize that the absence of information on the characteristics of students in the schools taking part in national testing programs leads to misleading and damaging use of the data derived. As well, we must find ways of measuring to the extent possible the many types of student performance that are not fully captured by a national test. What Can National Testing Tell Us?

    No Child Left Behind
    Testing, testing, testing

    In 1994, the ESEA required that all states develop standards in various subjects. All students, not just those in Title 1, were to be tested (unless barred by state law) at least three times in reading and math to determine whether they were meeting the state standards. While all states were expected to make progress, the law left it up to the states to specify how much progress was required. Title 1 of ESEA 2001, however, focuses heavily on testing results based on state standards. Every state must now continue to administer a yearly reading and math test once in each of the following grade spans: 3-5, 6-9, and 10-12. By 2005-06 all states must have yearly assessments in reading and mathematics in all grades 3-8. States will also have to begin yearly testing of science in each of the above listed grade spans in 2007-08.
    NCLB Budget Flexibility
    State and local school districts may transfer up to 50 percent of the federal funding they receive under four major state grant programs Innovative Programs, Teacher Quality, Educational Technology, and Safe and Drug-Free Schools to any one of these programs or to the Title 1 program. NCLB also includes a competitive State Flexibility Demonstration Program that allows up to seven states and 150 school districts to consolidate state formula grant funds for entering into agreements holding them accountable for higher academic performance. These consolidated funds may be used for any educational purpose authorized under the ESEA.

    A sweeping education act that leaves no one untouched
    by Monty Neill
    B y overwhelming majorities, the House and Senate passed the "No Child Left Behind" Act (NCLB) last December. On January 8, 2002, President Bush signed this bill into law, reauthorizing the longstanding Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). This comprehensive educational policy (1,180 pages) encompasses Title 1, the federal government's aid program for disadvantaged children. NCLB represents the biggest increase in federal government involvement (in both regulations and dollars) in K-12 education in several decades. This ambitious legislation includes provisions for everything from assessment to homeless students.
    NCLB places substantial pressure on states and local school districts to raise student achievement as measured by yearly test scores. Individual school populations as a whole, as well as different racial, ethnic, income, and disability subgroups within each, must meet "adequate yearly progress" (AYP) towards a proficient level of achievement to be reached within 12 years (2013-2014). Those schools and school districts that fail to make AYP after predetermined amounts of time are first subject to improvement measures, then to corrective and restructuring actions. Besides assessment and accountability, other key principles of NCLB include greater choice for parents and students, increased flexibility for states and school districts in the use of federal money, and an emphasis on teaching methods based on "scientific research," especially with regard to teaching young children to read (Reading First).
